Americans still view home ownership as the American Dream. With nearly 25% of home owners at the present time owing more on their homes than they are worth, 9 of 10 Americans polled still see the value in home ownership and see it as part of the American dream. The majority of those polled also felt the government should be doing more to improve housing markets. Most blamed the financial institutions for the sluggish housing market. 66% of those polled say strategic default is NOT justified. This poll seems to be a nice vote of confidence for housing in one of the most historically troubling times we have witnessed.
